After one of many 100km rides in 2013 we returned to Elmswell station, and with some time to spare before the train back to Cambridge I wandered around with a camera.

Starting at the level crossing which is the only connection between the two platforms:

Most of the station building is in private hands as a travel agents, but there is a small alcove for passengers to shelter in:
